16 Hilarious Halloween Costumes For Babies To Buy Or DIY
There are certain costumes you are basically guaranteed to see this Halloween: a witch, a cat, a zillion Game of Thrones characters — the list goes on. But why not take advantage of the fact that your baby has zero opinion about costumes, just for this year? While there’s nothing wrong with sticking with the staples, there are so many creative (and simple!) outside-of-the-box hilarious Halloween costumes for babies that are made even funnier by the fact that they’re being rocked by a tiny person.
You can use your baby’s Halloween costume to pay tribute to one of Elton John’s most outrageous outfits, create a funny mom and baby duo costume, or transform your kiddo into a tiny version of one of your favorite TV show characters. You might as well use the opportunity to showcase your winning sense of humor. The world of adorable baby Halloween costumes is endless.
Whether you’re looking to DIY a costume or plan to grab one from the store at the last minute, you can get one of these 16 hilarious Halloween getups for your tot in no time at all. Get ready to be known as the funniest family on the block. (Or at least the one with the funniest babe.)

Elton John has had some outrageous looks over the years, but his Mardi Gras feather costume might just take the cake as one of his best and most flamboyant.

Intimidate everyone on the block with this tough guy biker costume.
